This song by one of my favorite bands of all time strikes me as an anthem to awakening. Klaatu sings joyfully of a journey about to begin, the culmination of a “master plan” (a Great Work, I would say) . There is no judgment or damnation here. We got everything we need already, i.e. your crown chakra. To come along, all we have to day is wake up (i.e. activate your crown chakra, draw Consciousness into the vessel), merge (a metaphor for Connection if I ever heard one), set sail, and follow the North star, which I’m going to say is a metaphor for following your own internal compass, or the urging of your higher Self and Guides (reading).  If you ask me, amazing and beautiful Calling to awaken, as appropriate now as when it was first issued some four decades ago.

 

We’re Off you know

We’re off you know to a distant land
And the only ones allowed to come are those who feel they can
Go right along with the master plan
For we’re all agreed that all we need is sitting there in your head
(Is that all? That’s all. That’s all? That’s all.)

So raise the sails and trim all the sheets
Set your course and jam all the cleats
We’ll follow the north star to know where we are so
You sleepyheads get out of bed right now
Let your fortunes be cast to the wind

And so it’s off we go to some uncharted shore
‘Cause the only kind we’re out to find are those worth looking for
You can tag along should you feel the urge to merge
‘Cause we’re all agreed that all we need is Hope and a little courage
(Is that all? That’s all. Ooh hoo hoo)

So raise the sails and trim all the sheets
Set your course and jam all the cleats
We’ll follow the North Star to know where we are so
You sleepyheads get out of bed right now
Get out the lead full steam ahead smartly now
For the journey begins
The journey begins
Our journey begins come the sun
